Putting Your Road To Sobriety In Perspective
Based on whether reuse is just one time or constant, you can decide to enter into a full rehabilitation program.
Going back to rehab in no way indicates that you or the process for the rehab has failed. The journey of addiction has long-lasting effects, and it is essential to act as and when required in order to remain in the path to recovery.
Some people attain quickly abstinence almost immediately after their backsliding which is quite conventional in the first few months. The effects of alcohol can be severe when you stop and go back to the use again.
Staying drug-free should be the primary governing factor when you make the decision of going back or not to rehab.
Understanding these statistics is essential and addicts who are starting life afresh all over again are encouraged to protect their sobriety by utilising support services for aftercare and the 12-step programs. The time taken for recovery will also be shortened if you can overcome some of the temptations of recovering.
Should I Undergo Treatment Once More
If your return to substance abuse has become a d j vu of the old habit then it is imperative to seek help.
If a slip occurs it is very vital that you open up to your sponsor or counsellor so you can be offered assistance in coping. You can always stop the use of the drugs. In case of a relapse, seek help right away.
The intensity and duration of your relapse determine if you must undergo rehab again or not. The tendency to get back to the use of alcohol tend to different between people.
- A momentary weakness or an instance of use can be considered as an isolated case.
- When a slip happens, the person understands the risk he or she may have taken and stops using the substance before sliding back into an addiction all over again.
- A relapse is an entirely different and is a serious event in which the individual returns to a pattern of drug or alcohol abuse, which can last over a period of days or weeks just like they were doing earlier.
- Avoidance of support system previously put in place like support groups, 12 step meetings and supervisors occur frequently in regression.

Why Did Treatment Fail The First Time
Falling into a relapse is not a sign of failure of the treatment plant; it just means the present treatment strategy needs to be recalibrated. Presence of initiators, longings, uninteresting lifestyle and self-disbelief can make one to backslide to previous lifestyle. It is said that the addiction becomes even stronger once relapse sets in. Reinforcement of the drug using habits is promoted by the fact that the user try to detach from his conscience because of disgrace and embarrassment. Every single instance of drug use after rehab weakens chances of recovery. Relapse could lead to a more serious situation for the patient hence sufficient effort and attention should be given to bounce back asap.
One should be able to acknowledge that sobriety becomes a daily way of life coming out from the treatment facility.

Rehab For The Second Time
If you are clearly in a relapse situation, returning to a treatment facility is a no brainer. The strict rules and routines in the treatment facility are very helpful in alleviating your urges and symptoms.
It is suggested that seeking treatment from a different facility this time might be better in order to implement a new regimen that would be more effective.
One of the techniques that is being used for such cases is the Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). Learning about reactions to some initiators both living and non-living factors that promote the urge to use alcohol and other substances is one of the importance of CBT. During your second rehab you can learn ways to dodge and handle triggers.
Taking a look at the events or emotions which may have triggered the relapse and learning how properly to deal about these issues in the future are also extremely important. The possibility of needing newer, better ways to handle stress, like breathing-based meditation and yoga, cannot be ruled out. All these practices can provide recovering addicts the help, they need to manage stressful situations after the treatment program has ended.
